    Hi all,
    (I hope this is the right forum... it was a TV miniseries, after all...)
    I saw a DVD of this miniseries for sale at a rather good price. However, I never saw the original miniseries. How was it?
    Just looking to see if its actually worth buying. Thanks for any replies.
    Chad

    I was overjoyed when this one came out on DVD. If you are into fantasies and plots that twist and turn, you'll like it too.
    Don't expect a great picture or sound (after all, this was a TV movie), but I thought that the plot and casting were well done.

    I want to buy the dvd myself but I heard that it is edited. Can anyone shine a light on this?

    Edited? You mean they took out the commercials?
    Sorry, I couldn't pass that one up. [​IMG]
    When this first came out on TV, I taped it with the commercials, but I can easily add up commercial time, and the DVD length matches.
    There are two versions of this out, though. One has two DVD's, and the other 3. The total should be about 417 min. I got the 3 for my DVD changer.

    I thought this was the stupidest sounding mini-series ever. Then one night when there was nothing else on I found myself flipping channels and landed on it. There were a few funny lines, and the next thing I knew it was over! Huh? How did I spend 1 1/2 hours (including commercials!) watching this and not realize it??? I was glued to my TV for the remaining episodes, and pre-ordered the DVD so I could see the part I missed ASAP. In the meantime, I bought, and read in one sitting, the book!
    Uh, yeah, I guess you could say my opinion was favorable. I have the 3 DVD set.
